White knight

From Wiki 4 Men

White knight is a pejorative term used in the manosphere to refer to men who defend women against other men. The latter results in proxy violence. This is generally seen as the white knight seeking female approval. The behaviour of white knights varies from men who automatically back women in discussions and arguments all the way to men who are physically violent to other men if they perceive that a woman is in danger.

White knights generally avoid conflict between women.
